Anyone have a homemade chicken and dumplings recipe that would work for one person? I'd like to try and make one for my next trip.Aug 25, 2012 at 11:51 am #1905978

Chicken : I like freeze dried
Broth: Swanson broth concentrate
Dried onions, celery, carrots and peas
Dumplings: butter+ flour + baking powder+ salt+ seasonings. Pre-mix dry, add butter on site with water.
Bring water to simmer, add broth and chicken, add onion etc, spoon in dumplings, turn off heat, insulate and wait.Aug 25, 2012 at 1:56 pm #1906014

I hate to admit this but! Someone gave me some MRE's and one was Chicken and dumplings. I found it to be very good. Might want to keep an eye open for one.Aug 25, 2012 at 5:51 pm #1906050
It is a great recipe – while it does require cooking and a larger 2L pot it is worth it.Aug 26, 2012 at 11:13 am #1906149
Made that above Guitar Lake a couple seasons ago – to this day one of my favorite trail meals ever =0)Aug 26, 2012 at 1:43 pm #1906183

Is there a way to make your recipe work with a smaller pot? I'll just be feeding myself.Aug 31, 2012 at 8:11 am #1907907
Jeff, you can cut it in half and use a 3 ounce can of chicken instead (add the broth to the soup part for more flavor). Then you can use a smaller pot.Sep 18, 2012 at 8:32 am #1913283
Kendall Katwalk Chicken n Dumplings
1 (7 ounce) packet cooked chicken (foil pouch)
2 1/4 cups Bisquick baking mix
1 teaspoon dried parsley
3 teaspoons chicken bouillon
1 tablespoon dried vegetable flakes
1 tablespoon dried onion flakes
1/2 teaspoon celery salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
At home: put the Bisquick, and parsley in a zip locking plastic bag. In a second bag put the remaining ingredients. Carry the chicken pouch seperately.
In camp: bring 3 cups of water to a boil, add the broth/veggie mix. Reduce heat and keep simmering.
Add the chicken. Meanwhile, make the dumplings by adding 2/3 cup of water to the bag of Bisquick. Zip shut and squish to combine well. Snip off a corner off the bag and squeeze out dumplings.
Let them simmer, covered, for a couple of minutes or until they puff up and float to the top.
